A tool for students to visualize spending
PreparedForU is a simple webapp for university aspirants and students in Singapore to estimate and compare their spending on tuition, housing, transport and rent, and make financially smart decisions based on data visualization. My team and I built this as a semester project for the Sotware Engineering course at NTU.
I used Bootstrap and Vue.js for a dynamic frontend. Firebase was used as a backend and all calculations were based on publically available university data (scraped with Selenium), OneMapSG Routing API and Singapore Government Transport Fares APIs. As I’ve been moving more and more towards research as opposed to engineering, doing this project was a breath of fresh air: I got learn the Vue.js framework and spent hours making the front-end look pixel perfect!
